The tale of third time lucky in Dubrovnik.

A conversation we had, sitting with a glass of Prosek and a sea view in the evening: M: I know this is actually asking a lot, and that it’s a long way, and we’ve been there twice already, and I photographed everything there was to […]

The tale of the bluest water.

Since it’s been our third time in Croatia, we decided to visit some completely new places, and the park was one of them. Nacionalni park “Krka” is a great competition for its larger and more popular cousin -Plitvickie Jezera. There are two entrances to the […]

The tale of Burek, bosanska kahva, and turski čaj.

Bosnia and Herzegovina – the country. Mostar and Blagaj – the towns. Neretva and Buna – the rivers. Burek, bosanska kahva, and turski čaj – the food. M and K – the totally enchanted tourists. BiH is a beautiful place. Definitely visitting again. ASAP.

Long time no see! A lot of changes since the last post. K. shouldn’t have taken me to the mountains! When trekking, I did way toooooo much thinking and started ‘the doing’ part 😀 I came back home, quit my job, turned our flat upside […]

No more than 40 km away from Szczecin we found a piece of paradise. Actually, two pieces 😉 Włodkowice – an animal farm with deer, boars, rabbits, horses and goats. A place where we were given home-made cheese, fresh milk and eggs. A place where […]

The tale of liberation in Hustopeče.

If I had to live in a different country in Europe, The Czech Republic would definitely be one of my top choices. Coming back was just a matter of time. And I don’t regret a single moment spent there. Vineyards. Fields. Return to innocence. Sudden […]

It’s been a while. I know. Could be sorry about it, but I’m not – there’s been too much going on lately, and I guess it’s just more interesting than posting photos 😉 Back on holiday. Eurotrip 2. We started in Bratislava. Some people say […]
